The dedicated professionals of Cushman & Wakefield Dallas are passionate about giving back to the local community. Over the last few months, several groups demonstrated that commitment by carving out time to help improve the lives of those in need.
First, our Property Management team volunteered over the course of two days in April at Dallas Life, a local homeless shelter that provides dormitory-style housing for men, women and children. A total of around 30 Cushman & Wakefield volunteers helped to serve lunch to their fellow citizens affected by homelessness. The team was proud to have a chance to give back to the community in such a meaningful way.
Then, the Dallas Chapter of Cushman & Wakefield Future Leaders (CWFL) kicked off the company’s CWFL Week of Caring by volunteering April 26 at a Team Tutor Day with Reading Partners of North Texas. A group of 10 members spent the morning working one-on-one with students from Stephen C. Foster Elementary. The group also gathered more than $500 in donations of money and supplies, such as children’s books and crayons, to help promote early childhood literacy.
Finally, the CWFL team wrapped up our 2019 Week of Caring by gathering another group of volunteers who visited The Stew Pot, a safe haven for homeless and at-risk individuals, to serve more than 400 meals. Doug Jones, a Senior Associate at Cushman & Wakefield Dallas and organizer for CWFL Dallas, said the event “was a great reminder of how blessed we are here at C&W and that there’s always more we can do in our community.”
It’s safe to say Doug’s sentiment could be applied to all of the community work that the Cushman & Wakefield Dallas team does throughout the year: It is an honor to have the chance to help—and it’s a reminder that we can always do more.
